Growth From 2019 To 2020: 16.3%
The widespread adoption of remote work resulted in widely dispersed networks and teams, with many employees working on their personal laptops and phones. This has led to increased vulnerabilities, providing hackers with unprecedented opportunities to attack and breach defenses. In response, the need for skilled technologists to identify and plug these security holes saw cybersecurity analysts enjoy the largest growth in salary of any occupation in America, Dice said.
The average cybersecurity analyst salary increased 16.3 percent from $88,663 in 2019 to $103,106 in 2020.
Dice projects that security analyst salaries will increase 28.5 percent over the next 10 years.
